Co-op Services Credit Union Demonstrates Team Spirit at Forgotten Harvest

LIVONIA, MI (March 18, 2013) – Six members of Co-op Services Credit Union’s marketing department demonstrated their team spirit during a recent visit to Forgotten Harvest.  The team volunteered to repackage nearly 3500 pounds of food that is sent to soup kitchens, shelters, food pantries and other locations throughout the Detroit area to help feed the hungry.

“Forgotten Harvest’s mission aligns very closely with the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people’,” said Lisa Fawcett, vice president of marketing for Co-op Services Credit Union.  “Volunteering at Forgotten Harvest gave us the opportunity to share our team spirit and bring us even closer together—knowing that we are helping others.”

Forgotten Harvest relies almost completely from volunteers, including representatives from local businesses like Co-op Services.

Founded in 1990 to fight hunger and waste, Forgotten Harvest services Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties, and is currently the nation’s largest food rescue organization.

Headquartered in Livonia, Co-op Services Credit Union has more than 49,000 members and maintains eight full-service branch offices in the Detroit metro area.  Members also have access to more than 6,800 credit union service centers and nearly 30,000 ATMs nationwide.  Member deposits are insured to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), a U.S. government agency.
